The present global violence and crime statistics with women dominating among victims of the offence are on the rise, and it is quite natural – as long as women are at higher risk of offence being generally less protected and more vulnerable. The modern gender sociology rates differently the individual lifestyles and images of the both sexes, with a woman still largely considered a weaker sex incapable of a mental and physical resistance and, hence, having to yield to brutal male force. Woman’s body and dignity may easily fall pray for violence as little if any women may protect themselves from offenders being mentally and physically unfit for resistance. It should be noted that it is not unusual that aggressive/ violent actions are taken by one woman against the other. This alarming situation requires the relevant proactive educational actions being taken to help women getting fit for resistance and defence to safeguard their dignity and social status in the modern social environment.
